I have a student interested in Rice. She is a qualified applicant on all levels. She is interested in the opportunity for liberal arts exploration before declaring a major, not coming to college with a laser-focused path. Her interests include cognitive science, neuroscience, psych, political science, international relations.

I spoke with Rice's director of admissions at IECA Chicago and he stressed that they look for "evidence to support a student's intended area of study" such as research and pursuits beyond the classroom. Students apply into one of six undergrad schools, only get one choice, and Rice supplement asks student to explain their choice.
